Dr. Yarneccia D. Dyson has been selected as a 2020 Health Disparities Research Institute Scholar and will attend this virtual event in early August. The goal of the Health Disparities Research Institute is to provide participants with a broad overview of the leading issues facing minority health and health disparities research and stimulate discussion of proposed research projects. Activities will include lectures, seminars, interactive sessions, and small group discussions with leading scientists and NIH staff. This training program is normally held at the NIH campus but due to COVID-19, they have changed the format this year. This is sponsored by the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities of the NIH. Here is the link to the website.
